Dynamic goals instead of OKRs – How Zalando aligned its autonomous teams in a highly scaled environment
In 2019, 31 million customers have shopped at Zalando, more than ever before. But although 2019 was a record year for Zalando, the e-commerce giant is continuously questioning its processes.
In the Fireside Chat, Jan Hegewald, Head of Engineering – Product and Category Experience, will explain how Zalando scales and develops its agile processes. You will hear from Jan why the company is moving away from OKRs and how Zalando has built a dynamic prioritization process. Jan also gives insight into the online retailer’s technological setup, where it is crucial to keep the balance between flexible microservices and stable software architecture.
Above all, Jan focuses on the question of how to implement company-wide initiatives in a highly scaled environment with autonomous teams instead of always optimizing local features.
